Manager: Rest, rehab possible for Rays SP Drew Smyly


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash has echoed the optimism expressed by Rays starter Drew Smyly in regard to the torn labrum that has the left-hander on the 60-day disabled list.

"There are so many different degrees to a shoulder issue," Cash told MLB Network Radio. "He met with doctors and rest and rehab is now a possibility."

Smyly is hopeful he can return to the mound at some point this season. He performed well in three starts before going down despite an 0-1 record, yielding just five runs on 10 hits in 16 2/3 innings while striking out 21.


Rays' Drew Smyly hopeful he can pitch through torn labrum


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) After meeting with doctors, Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly told reporters that the tear in his labrum is not considered a significant tear. He remains confident that he'll be able to pitch through the issue, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"I obviously have a shoulder problem," Smyly said, per the Tampa Tribune. "After talking with a few of the doctors that I’ve met with, we’ve decided to rehab it. Everyone seems very optimistic that that’s the route to take. It’s not choosing that over surgery. They act like surgery’s not even really an option right now."

Smyly was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday because of the injury. He will need approximately eight weeks of rehab before rejoining the club.

Rays SP Drew Smyly throws 79 pitches in season debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly lasted 4 2/3 innings during his season debut Friday against the Blue Jays. Smyly began the season on the disabled list due to a shoulder injury.

The left-hander allowed two runs on four hits and no walks, while striking out five. He threw 55 of 79 pitches for strikes.

''That's baseball,'' said Smyly, who was hampered by tendinitis in spring training. ''I had a pre-determined pitch count and it stinks that it landed with one out to go in the fifth.''

Smyly got off to a great start Friday, retiring the first 10 batters he faced before Devon Travis hit a one-out home run in the fourth inning. Smyly then allowed three straight singles. The last single in the sequence produced another run. 

Smyly was then lifted in the fifth inning after retiring the first two batters.

''Extremely unfortunate that his pitch count kind of got to the difficult decision-making zone, and that's on me that we had to prioritize his health over his record at this point,'' manager Kevin Cash said. ''I apologize to him, but that's the plan we had in place and we wanted to stick to it.''

He is schedule to make his next start Wednesday at N.Y. Yankees.

Meanwhile, with Smyly and Loney no longer on the disabled list, the team sent Mike Mahtook and Allan Dykstra to their Triple-A affiliate.


Rays to activate Drew Smyly, James Loney Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) The Rays are set to activate pitcher Drew Smyly and first baseman James Loney from the 15-day disabled list Friday after optioning two players following Thursday's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.

Smyly will make his season debut against the Blue Jays on Friday after opening the season on the disabled list due to a shoulder injury suffered this spring.

"Last time I faced them, I had the best game I've played," Smyly said, per MLB.com. "But I'm sure they could hit quite a few home runs, too, if I'm a little bit off. They have a lot of power up and down the lineup. A lot of righties. They're a very, very dangerous lineup. But baseball's crazy, man. You never know what's going to happen. It could work out well, it could work out bad. You just have to go out there and compete. That's all there is to it."

Loney has been dealing with an oblique injury but was able to serve as the designated hitter in his rehab debut Thursday.
